Our Provider

Our Provider

The $500 I still needed for my rent occupied my every thought and gave way to worry. I couldn’t figure out how I was going to pay it. After a few days that seemed forever, in prayer, I realized that I was focusing on what I needed instead of the Lord Jesus, my provider. Instead of heaviness, I felt praise rising up and thanked Him for His upcoming provisions.

Our reasonings hinder our faith in God. God’s ways are not our ways; He provides and multiplies supernaturally. We can only believe that it will be done in His timing, His way… and He will be glorified. Our riches can never compare to the riches of the glory in Christ Jesus. Our needs are met according to His riches, not ours. 

We trust the loving care of our Heavenly Father with a childlike faith. We do not walk by sight.  We look up to God, the source of every resource. He is bigger than what we are facing; He is higher than what is seen; He is more glorious than what we can imagine. He is our provider, from glory to glory!

Philippians 4:19 “And my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus.”

Running Short?

Running Short?

We run short of love, patience, joy, gentleness, and self-control. We run short of wisdom, understanding and ability. We run short of hope, strength, and passion. We run short of finances and of what we think will bring us happiness. It’s when we run short that we run to the Lord. We come to Him, knowing that no matter what we reach for to fill the void, only He can satisfy.

Not only we find ourselves lacking emotionally, but physically as well. God supplies all of our needs. If we need food, He’ll multiply our resources. If we lack strength, He’ll increase His power. When we are deficient, He is all sufficient. When we feel inferior, we remember He is superior. When we cannot, He can. God uses our lack to show us His abundance

God doesn’t meet our needs according to our riches, but according to His. We cannot measure what He will do based on who we are or what we have. When we run short, we find He is more than enough and bestows treasures upon us. We all fall short of the glory of God, but when we receive Him, we receive His glory and learn to expect from Him what only He can give, from glory to glory!
